A Cornerstone of Financial Planning A Simple Will Makes Estates Manageable

stockfresh_2662466_last-will-and-testament-concept-of-estate-planning_sizeS_124228-300x196Employees have a bucket list of resolutions they want to achieve. Many objectives are matters which have been delayed, and now people are intent on getting stuff done. Financial planning is an important topic of the annual to-do list.

Financial planners have many ideas and suggestions their clients can use. Retirement is something employees over 40 are concerned about. Professionals recommend part of a retirement plan should be drafting a will, something many group legal plans are glad to do. Employers help an individual prepare for those golden years by offering a group legal plan. Countrywide Pre-Paid Legal Services provides this benefit, and it includes a simple will option.

Avoiding Probate Hell

Those who do not have a will are doing their loved ones no favors. The estate becomes the playground of the probate court and turtles run faster. The probate court will appoint an administrator who reports directly to the court. Everything will move at a plodding pace.

The survivors might wait for months or even years before a final settlement. Expenses such as college tuition can be affected. The state can also become an emotional battleground when the deceased’s wishes are unknown. Countrywide wants to help a group legal plan member avoid all the emotional drama.

Communication Skills Matter A Lot

Listening is a critical skill our attorneys have. They will listen carefully to a plan member and note that person’s wishes. All questions about creating a simple will are answered thoroughly.
